Pimento cheese is one of those Southern staples without which I cannot live. There are a zillion varieties, but unfortunately most of the tubs of this delicacy you will find down at your local grocer are full of added sugars and starches.
What’s a ketonian to do?
Luckily, pimento cheese is a totally low carb dip idea when made from scratch. When combined with my savory baconnaise, it’s an amazing addition to any party, gathering (hello to the Big Game, y’all!), or as a side on your keto lunch/dinner plate. I’ve even used this as the filling for jalapeño poppers, and it’s fantabulous!
Notes: This recipe, as the title suggests, is my favorite way to make an easy keto pimento cheese, but you can jazz this dip up as much as you like by changing the cheeses and spices, or adding in various crunchy bits. Because I’m nice, I made a few suggestions in the notes below.
